Well, yesterday Chris and I spent all day in Boston. It was quite a bit of fun. We ended up meeting up with Jeff at Satellite records on Mass Ave. We hadn’t seen Jeff since the last time we had been to Avalon. After Chris dropped a large chunk of money on some vinyl for the turntables he may or may not have, we headed over to Harvard Square. We poked around at The Garage before Jeff’s girlfriend Heidi met us for dinner at Uno’s. We had a nice dinner but had to say goodbye because it was time for Chris and I to get to the Bruins game. We got there a few minutes late but it worked out alright. Chris was made to go across the street to a bar and have them hold his backpack in the coat check because the security at the Fleet wouldn’t let him in. That in itself is rather ridiculous because right before us a lady walked through with one of those mini-backpack-purse things. So, I went up to the seats while Chris dealt with his backpack. The seats we had were absolutely fantastic, probably the best seats we’ve ever had at the Fleet. We were in the “clubhouse” section which means that you don’t even have to get up for food, they bring it to you. How nice!
The game was good although the Bruins lost. They played like crap for the 3rd period and didn’t really try and mount a comeback which was kind of sad. It was enjoyable non-the-less. After the game we took the T back over to Wellington and drove home from there. All in all it was quite a good trip into Bean Town.
As for today I’ve got a few things to do (laundry, packing, etc) before celebrating the New Year later this evening. Jeff was trying to get Chris and I interested in a rave in Springfield but I don’t think either of us are up for it. We’d be going to Avalon if it wasn’t $50 friggin bucks to get in. So, the tentative plan is to hang around here, get some pizza and some drinks and have a nice home-brewed New Years Eve.
Thats about it as far as NYE goes. Later.
